There can be no question of whether or not an unemployment hearing reaches deeply into the realms of practicing law; all things about such hearings conforms to the very practices and principles of practicing law. And because of this, a former employee must give careful thought to what they say and do during the entire process.
Employer's are commonly armed with attorney's and human resource personnel, who are both skilled learned professionals in matters of employment law. Thus, even if an employer enters into an unemployment appeal hearing they are already armed with legal knowledge to fight the appealing former employee.
However, former employee's do not have the luxury of having a team of skilled learned professionals in their corner, giving them legal advice about unemployment hearings and as such, are at great disadvantage when ligitigating cases. Perhaps even more so if and when appeal judges (referred to as Referee's) are corrupt in whole or in any part so as to prejudice the former employee in any way.
